The Medizinische Klinik IV is part of Ludwig-Maximilians University, the leading institution in German academic medicine.

His research specialities include adrenal physiology and pathophysiology, endocrine hypertension, pituitary disease, mineralocorticoid and glucocorticoid action and stress research. Professor Reincke is heading a research team specifically exploring the prevalence and relevance of mineralocorticoid excess in resistant hypertension on the epidemiological, clinical, genetic and molecular level.

The research teams of his clinic have particular expertise in assay development and validation for endocrine disease, development of genetically manipulated animals as models for human adrenal disease.

Professor Reincke is a member of many national and international societies, including the Endocrine Society, European Society of Endocrinology and European Network of the study of adrenal tumors. He has served in the Executive Board of the German Endocrine Society and European Society of Endocrinology, is on the editorial board of several international journals, and has served as teaching dean of the faculty from 2006-2012.

Currently, he is president of the German Endocrine Society (2014-2017). He has published more than 290 Medline listed publications cited >6000 times, his h-index is 46.
